For the 2013 season, Pipistrel’s Sinus, Virus and Virus SW lineup now feature Dynon Avionics D-180 instruments as standard equipment.
Pipistrel is offering a newly designed extra-large instrument panel on these airplanes as an option.
For the flagship Virus SW 100 equipped with the Rotax 912 iS engine, Pipistrel selected the SkyView system as standard. All Sinus, Virus and Virus SW aircraft, including LSA and kitbuilts, can be further upgraded to top-of-the-line dual redundant 7-inch or 10′-inch SkyView displays, with autopilot, transponder and ADS-B options.
Ivo Boscarol, Pipistrel CEO, says: “We have had a firm and successful relationship with Dynon which dates back to year 2002 and have always been impressed with their products. As customers are becoming more and more demanding, we decided to include these most advanced avionics already in the basic price of our aeroplanes. This not only gives our customers a better, safer and enjoyable flight experience, but is the best promise for future flexibility and choice of upgrades even years down the road.”
